Vegan Gumbo

Produce Box Vegetables: Okra, Mushrooms, Black Eyed Peas, Add: Diced Sweet Potatoes or Red Potatoes, Wilted Cowpea Greens

“This vegan gumbo recipe is hearty, savory, filling and warming. With a mix of beans, mushrooms and okra, this vegetarian gumbo is cheap to make and full of flavour. Starting with a dark, rich roux, key herbs and spices, and a secret umami ingredient, it’s hard to believe that this vegan gumbo doesn’t have any meat in it!”

Butternut Squash Corn Chowder

This classic butternut squash soup is blended with sweet corn until smooth and is topped with a fresh, bright salsa for texture and crunch.
